DAVIE, Fla. – A South Florida masseuse was arrested Monday after molesting a 17-year-old girl at a Davie massage parlor, police said.

Davie police said Orlay Palacio, 29, inappropriately touched the teenager while she and her 18-year-old cousin were at the Massage & Stretch Center.

According to a police report, the girl claimed that Palacio told her to take off her clothes and lay face down on the massage table.

"The victim stated that during the massage, Palacio would periodically touch her vagina and remove his hand like it was an accident," Detective Zev Spiller wrote in the report.

Palacio told the girl to roll over so he could massage her upper chest, but instead he would touch her breasts and nipples in a sexual manner, Spiller wrote.

He later removed her underwear and tried to perform oral sex, but the girl said she "kept her legs closed and he stopped," the report said.

The girl told police that Palacio also grabbed her hand and placed it on his now-exposed penis.

Palacio, who faces one count of lewd and lascivious conduct, was taken into custody Monday while he was at work. Police said he refused to answer questions and asked for an attorney.
